Can I really trust God?

Dr. Chuck Betters

Answer:   “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of His being, sustaining all things by His powerful Word….” Hebrews 1:3a

In other words, Jesus sustains the universe with one word; can He not also sustain you? God is sovereign and you can trust Him.

Throughout the rest of the book, the writer reminds his readers that God has already kept His promise of redemption by sending His Son, Jesus. We can trust Him to keep all of His promises, just as He said.

And in this messy world, when we want to quit our journey of faith, to give up because the heat of life is scorching our souls, like these broken believers, we need to revisit our worldview, the grid through which we view all of life. And the place to start is simple:

God is sovereign. You can trust Him. Will you?
